Recent Cakes from Sweet & Saucy Shop

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

I’m still trying to catch up on blog posting some cakes that we had the pleasure of making last year!  I have been so blessed to have such an amazing team behind me this past year and am excited as we go into this next year full of new couples, new cakes, and lots of fun times!

First up is a cake that I was so excited to work on!  This cake definitely has the most sugar flowers we’ve ever done before and I loved it.  We wanted it to be romantic and elegant and I think we did it!








This next cake was a challenge that I was up to.  The bride worked for the Girl Scout Company and wanted to implement the cookies onto the main wedding cake and 4 small side cakes as well.  I painted the cookies with edible gold paint and then added some chocolate jewels & bottoms too.  I really was thrilled with how it all turned out!




This black and white cake below is one that Kyong and I dreamed up.  I love having Kyong hand paint on our cakes so we came up with a look that we liked and let her go to town.  We accented it with a huge white sugar rose on top and it was finished!

Not all cakes are elegant & girlie, this next cake is full of modern fun with a whimsical flair.  We used hand cut fondant pieces and then painted on the cake as well.  The shape is unique too because instead of traditional rounds the bride wanted hexagon shapes.




Next up we did a traditional elegant wedding cake with a vintage twist.  We did brush embroidery on two of the tiers, mimicked the brides jeweled band on her wedding dress for one tier, and then lastly added a single blush pink garden rose to the bottom tier.


I love the look of bright colors, textures, and multiple cakes when done in the right way and I think we managed to pull it off with this next wedding.  Thanks to Jasmine Star for the photo below!





And lastly, normally draping isn’t my look, but I really did like this traditional style cake that we created.  I think the monochromatic look of it makes it look a little modern, but still very elegant and traditional.




Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and definitely let us know what you think of the cakes!

Bows, Ribbons & Frills

Wedding season is still upon us and that means LOTS of cakes to share with you! This first wedding was actually from last year & it was for a friend of mine!  It was a pleasure making their cake & mini cupcakes & overall I was really happy with their white and white wedding cake!  They wanted elegant and I think that’s what I gave them!

We made white sugar peonies for the top of the cake, a large sugar bow for the middle, brush embroidery flowers, and fondant draping to resemble her dress.

The cake was on a table all by itself so it would stand out and then they also had a table full of mini cupcakes!

Here is another wedding cake we did recently.  Pleating, sugar bows, and tiny dots!


Lastly we had the pleasure of doing a wedding cake & anniversary cake for a sweet couple at Rancho Las Lomas.




I loved the lace, ribbons, and large fushia garden rose!



They wanted a little bird topper too, so we did a sculpted pair & painted them in a champagne shimmer.



The sweet bride also wanted to surprise her parents with an anniversary cake since they were celebrating their special day along with them!  They wanted to keep it simplistic & use fresh succulents…I love the look of it!



Thanks for stopping by the blog!
